Can't recommend this place enough. Great rooms, lovely courtyard, awesome staff, and phenomenal cooking classes! Trip adviser demands that I write 200 characters, so I'm just filling up space right now. But really, great hotel. Can't go wrong staying here!

We really loved this hotel. There is a huge grassy area for relaxation or play. There are students studying Spanish here, so we didn't think it was a good place for a soccer match or something, but the kids did play a little here. It was a lovely place to have breakfast. Breakfast is included and is simple but good.... More

Arequipa's streets are lined with unappealing concrete buildings with the odd colonial Spanish building or church scattered about the city giving it a sense of its 500 years of culture. The streets are a constant stream of honking taxis, it is very busy and loud, but this hotel I am staying at is a real place of tranquility. The hotel,... More

We appreciate your commentary. Maybe one of the most beautiful ones we have received. We will take good care of this sanctuary, as you called our garden, and of the creatures living there. Hopefully we will manage to have space for guests to enjoy it too!. Thank you very much. Hope you or your friends will be back to enjoy... More

This is a big hotel, which also has a Spanish language school in it. The staff are helpful and will assist in arranging trips, of which they have a good selection. Breakfast was better here than in other hotels in Peru as you had the option of ordering additions for a very reasonable price, but they also had a better... More

We stayed 3 nights at Casa de Avila at the beginning of our trip to Peru, and we weren't disappointed ! The staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was really nice, really clean (one of the best room we stayed in during our 3 weeks trip). We had a room on the first floor and it was really... More

Very Attentive Staff (best so far in Peru) that did there best to make the stay very pleasant and personalized. Relaxing garden and great room (value for money). One minus; during our 6 night stay the water went cold twice (including our departures day at 5 am so no time to have it fixed) ouch!

We stayed here for three nights. The atmosphere from the common garden area and staff service levels is this place's obvious strengths. Our room was quite plain and small, facing the garden. Room was not cleaned from one day to the other, but this might be the normal here...? Wifi worked not in the room, but very vell outside in... More

The rooms are spacious and kept very clean. The garden is the big selling point for this hotel as it's beautifully kept and full of sun loungers as well as tables and chairs. We enjoyed heading out to sight-see early in the day and then coming back to enjoy the sunshine in the the afternoon. The hotel sells snacks and... More

We were very satisfied by the courtesy and competence of the staff, as well as from the hotel itself which is clean and excellently furnished. Breakfast is served in the elegant third floor with an exclusive and simply pleasant atmosphere. It is located 10 - 15 minutes walking from the city centre.

Stayed there in june 2014. Nice, clean hotel with a beautiful patio. Friendly and helpful staff, good breakfast buffet. They offer tours, too. We chose the 3 day private tour to Colca Canyon. Our guide was Frank Delgado. He was born in the Colca Canyon region and knows a lot about the culture, plants and animals in this area. Nice,... More
